Aloha Friday

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:
Can you parallel park or do you drive around the block?
I am almost never in a situation where I have to parallel park, but when I am, I usually pull up behind a car that doesn't have any car near it. I'm NOT comfortable with my parallel parking skills...or lack there of.

Pin It!

Yes I can parallel park.

Move to Chicago and you will learn how to parallel park in REALLY tight spaces pretty quickly. Either that or you would have to park about a mile away from your house. I definitely don't miss those days of walking three blocks loaded with all my groceries!

S Club Mama said...

I can but if it's too tight, no way. I'm also better in a car than a van or truck (that's what she said) (sorry lol).

I parallel park. I am not driving around the block forever. We live in a small town that has outgrown the parking. You could drive around and around and around forever looking for that end spot.

I'm not great at it and I'll avoid it if I can. I can parallel park given enough time but if there's another option, I'm taking it.

When I lived in the city I had to parallel park. I had a small Nissan then. I'm thinking my minivan isn't the best parallel parking vehicle today.

Have a great Friday!

I used to be an awesome parallel parker when I had a small car. Now with the van, I drive around the block - I don't trust myself to parallel park that beast! :)

Sam and His Parents (Angie and Brian) said...

Yes I can parallel park.

I can sort of parallel park, but luckily for the most part there are other places to park anywhere I go:)

blueviolet said...

If I can go head first into the parallel parking slot, I'll do it. Otherwise, I'll go elsewhere!

Jennifer Leigh said...

LOL, Yes I can parallel park. John made sure of it when he taught me to drive.

I used to parallel park all the time when I lived downtown. I don't do it very often anymore.

Promise Weddings and Events said...

I totally drive around the block - or force my husband to drive whenver I think we might have to parallel!

Twincerely,Olga said...

yes i can parallel Park!!Woo~hoo! just put my van in a tight spot!!!:)

Cynthia Krajcarski said...

I hate parallel parking, so I look for a spot that's WIDE OPEN. I've never been in a situation where I've had to parallel park... yet.

Sue said...

Good question & the answer is no! Downtown where I live you would have to do that if you want to park on the street. I have no idea how to even begin to do that. I avoid that area at all costs - lol.

Mighty M said...

I CAN do it, but I generally avoid it if I can, especially in my bigger car.

Jess said...

Oh I am so with you Dee!!! L loves to back into stalls & the garage too & it annoys the heck out of me, I cringe the whole time!

TheAngelForever said...

When I went to college I was a commuter and had to parallel park A LOT. With a van I will do it if I know there is enough room and traffic is not too bad - otherwise I keep going.

Becca said...

I have never learned to parallel park and I hate it. I normally block the spot and call whoever I am visiting to come park my car :)

Night Owl Mama said...

Yes I can> I've been known to whip into places that were tinier than I thought my car would fit and not bat an eye or hit anything. Getting the doors open was another story

~ Noelle said...

nope, can not do it at all..
that makes marc SOOOO mad too!
He always asks, how did you pass your driving test? My answer: because WE DID NOT HAVE TO DO THAT!!!!!

TXsunlover said...

Yes I can parallel park. I have to do it every day. If I had to drive around the block to wait for an easy place to park I'd never get to work on time!

Xmas Dolly said...

I've been driving over... well let's just say a very long time, and if I don't know how to parallel park by now then something is radically wrong! LOL

sues2u2 said...

As long as there is not a huge line behind me then I can parallel. It's been a while though cause I live in the boondocks & really, there's not much practice out here. Maybe I could park between the bugs & spiders.

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

I parallel park. After driving a tiny Chevy Sprint in college, I can parallel park just about anything now, lol. :)

Amy - AKA - TigerMommie said...

Yup...I can parallel park....on either side....
However, I try to avoid it......
